Chopra Set to Join...Cardiff!

Mark Bloom, WalesOnline Michael Chopra rejoins Cardiff City

CARDIFF CITY are on the verge of pulling off an audacious coup by signing Michael Chopra.
- The astonishing deal will be tied up on Thursday morning after a day of talks between the player, his club Sunderland and Bluebirds chairman Peter Ridsdale this afternoon (Wednesday).
- Chopra is flying down from the north east to sign for the Bluebirds on a two month loan deal, which lasts until the end of December.
- Chopra, sold by Cardiff for £5million to Sunderland, comes back into the Championship to get regular first team football, after falling out of favour with Roy Keane in the north east.
- Ridsdale fought off stiff competition from QPR, who also wanted Chopra, to land his man. Ironically, Chopra's first game back in the blue shirt will be against QPR in Saturday's Loftus Road clash.

City boss Dave Jones has been desperately seeking a new front man after injuries to Ross McCormack and Jay Bothroyd.
In landing Chopra, a huge terrace favourite during his time with City, the Bluebirds appear to have struck gold. FULL STORY: See tomorrow's South Wales Echo" South Wales Echo
